TKW 50 kg. Observed fall 15 October 1972 Trujillo, Venezuela.

From the MetBul:
On the evening of 1972 October 15, a bright light accompanied by a loud noise was witnessed near the El Tinajero farm. The next morning, Dr. Arginiro Gonzales and his guest, Juan Dionicio Delgado, discovered that a cow had apparently been killed by a falling stone. The stone had broken into three pieces weighing 38, 8, and 4 kg, respectively.

Relatively large collection piece of this famous cow killing Fall, congrats...is that a bit of leather was left on that leading edge? If so, Cool ! Captain Blood (Michael) would want such a piece for sure...literally.

This piece looks pretty weathered. The MetBull. says: "The largest specimen remained outdoors for decades after the fall."
